    Toothpaste without fluoride?

    Am living in Lamphun and our water, including a lot of bottled water, contains too much fluoride to be regarded as completely safe. Virtually all toothpastes sold here contain added fluorine which must surely add to the problem?
    Does anybody know of a toothpaste sold here that does NOT contain added fluorine?

    Are you suggesting that the water authority adds fluoride? I doubt it.

    a few questions if you don't mind...

    are you drinking water out of the tap? if not, why do you care how much fluoride is in it?

    how much fluoride is too much to be regarded as safe?

    how do you know how much fluoride is in the local public and bottled water?

    are you an anti-vaxxer?

    what do you think really happened with building 7?

    have you met skkin? i think you two would probably get along great.

    There is a wide variety of herbal toothpastes without fluoride available in Thailand. Below is just one.

    The link is to amazon, but it's available over the counter along with many others.

    Commie! you should make a claim, brainwashed is a direct effect Vaccine Injury Compensation Data | Official web site of the U.S. Health Resources & Services Administration
    Note: There are a lot of claims made, it may take time, well over USD 4 billion paid out so far, so will be worth it.

    That link doesn't mean what you think it means but becaue you suffer from science denial and concurrent confirmation bias you'll never see it.

    Sounds possible however,
    Fluke would not just have made one post. He would keep on and on same topic.

    Absolutely not! That would cost money.
    But this is not about ADDING fluoride. Our groundwater here in the Chiang Mai - Lamphun basin suffers in most cases from an excess of fluoride. An excess of fluoride can cause memory problems and will leach the calcium from your teeth and bones. All NOT very desirable.

    Regardless of source almost all water here contains more than the accepted safe levels. Excess can cause memory problems and leach the calcium from your teeth and bones. The only safe source is from a well maintained reverse osmosis filtration unit. That means regular servicing and cleaning of the filter. May I remind you that this is Thailand!

    how much fluoride is too much to be regarded as safe?
    WHO has a lower limit than the Thai regulators, yet even the Thai levels are exceeded by almost all sources in this area due mainly to the hot springs and, in our area of the basin, compounded by the high extraction rates of groundwater by the local industrial estate.

    how do you know how much fluoride is in the local public and bottled water?
    Plenty of information from reputable sources are available on the net. Many researchers have looked at the subject and I suggest that look into it as it may also be a problem where you live.

    are you an anti-vaxxer?
    What the hell has that got to do with drinking water and fluoride?

    what do you think really happened with building 7?
    It fits the same vein as above.

    have you met skkin? i think you two would probably get along great.

    No, I haven't.
